The proposed development located on the western side of the Athlone main campus, adjacent to the Engineering building, will expand and upgrade the space available to the Applied Polymer Technology (APT) Centre by re-allocating existing building space and refurbishing the space into a state of the art research facility, and supplementing this practical area by constructing new space via an extension to the east and south of the existing structure. The extension space will merge with adjacent space in the existing building to create office accommodation for over 60 post graduate research students.
